Taking Time Inpresented by Dr. Dan Siegel
May 26, 2011
Studies of physical health, emotional well-being, longevity, happiness, and even wisdom suggest that our ability to be aware of our own internal world and feel deeply connected to others is at the heart of both resilience and mental health. In this talk, Dr. Siegel explains that this ability to see the mind, or to have "mindsight," is a learnable skill that stabilizes the lens through which we come to sense our feelings, thoughts, and memories. He further explains how "taking time in" can help one develop mindsight, which promotes more meaningful and empathetic relationships, an integrated and flexible brain, and a coherent and resilient mind.
